Now, was the time to leave for Kanyakumari. We visited A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Memorial which houses President Kalam's accolades and personal belongings. The Memorial has free entrance and nicely made with beautiful painting adorning the walls. It will take around 45 mins to take a tour and the Memorial is worth it! We reached Kanyakumari in the evening. It took us nearly 3 hours to reach here from Rameswaram.
